  • LINKAGES AMONG ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE, KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT, AND PATIENT SAFETY PERFORMANCE: EVIDENCE FROM A STATE HOSPITAL   Order a copy of this article
    by Saffet Ocak, Mehmet Ali Koseoglu, Andy Bertsch 
    Abstract: The present study aims to reveal the effects of organizational culture and knowledge management applications on patient safety performance. The sample of the study consists of nurses working in a state hospital with 502-bed capacity in Turkey. The data were collected through a questionnaire. The analyses conducted revealed that there is a negative correlation between various aspects of organizational culture and patient safety performance. In this correlation, it was found that the strongest effect comes from developmental culture and the weakest effect from rational culture. A positive strong and significant correlation was found between applications of knowledge management techniques and patient safety performance. This correlation is most affected by knowledge dissemination and it is followed by knowledge acquisition and responsiveness of knowledge. Moreover, we found a significant correlation between knowledge management and organizational culture. Finally, the implications for practice and literature will be discussed and suggestions will be made for further research.
